Disaster Medicine

The field of disaster medicine has become an area of major interest within the specialty of emergency medicine.7172 A section for disaster medicine has been organized within the American College of Emergency Physicians. Several national and international forums present the results of disaster medical research (e.g., annual conferences sponsored by the Florida chapter of ACEP, World Congresses on Disaster and Emergency Medicine, and meetings of the International Society for Disaster Medicine).73 Since ACEP first defined a disaster medicine curriculum for residencies and fellowships, a number of disaster medicine fellowships have been established in the United States.74 Disaster medicine continues to develop as a professional discipline in the United States, and emergency physicians are becoming increasingly involved in the areas of disaster response and humanitarian medical relief. 56
